Pat is on days off and we are going up to the Staaten & Gilbert Rivers for a look on Sunday.
Quite a few fresh water crocodiles were sunning themselves around the sandy banks of the rivers.
Gilbert River is about 130km north of Normanton on the Chiligoe road, the Staaten is 160km. The Gilbert has more water in it for the moment. Once the rain starts here all roads become blocked, it then turns into one big sheet of water.
So many beautiful camping spots around.
Pat and I went to Croyden on Monday and of course if there is a back way that is not bitumen then he finds it. He knew about this one because he is working on this road.
Pat showed me the camp he and his crew are staying at on the way through. we were lucky one of the station owners had opened all the gates except a couple, as I was in the passenger seat - the old country rule applies "the fate of the gate belongs to the **** in the front"( mind you I have cleaned it up a little )
It took about three and a half hours to reach the old gold mining town of Croyden. (146km by bitumen usually - that is the way home as I will be driving). We had lunch at the takeawy/supermarket then went out to Bellmore Dam for a look. A well maintained area - beautiful.
Kathy de Groot How are you both. See you are kept busy Pat. Glad you are having a look around.
Dee Cronin Yes we try to do things around the area as much as possible, but Pat needs to have take time out as well to make sure he gets some rest too.
Rejoice Hahaha how did the ******* in front feel about that? Lmao
Dee I grew up expecting to open the gates so there was no argument just acceptance.
